 The exhibition „New motives in Applied Painting“ comprises of the works of the three students of master studies majoring in Applied Painting, Veljko Vučković, Bojan Radišić and Željana Stojanović. The mentor is the associate professor Nikola Božović. Through their artworks the young artists introduce into the art the new ideas and new perspectives, their creative production is different, as are their different works, but through new motifs and „situations“ shown by their paintings we can follow the manner in which the painting changes.

„Veljko Vučković paints retro-historical portraits with totalitarian patterns in his perception of psychology of characters and existential situations in which the same find themselves. The colours are reduced, adjusted to melancholic atmosphere and the composition of the picture. Bojan Radišić takes ready, currently presented visual content from contemporary media space. The templates are intentionally separated and presented through a black and white filter. The artistic concept of Željana Stojanović is entirely different in its artistic nature in comparison to two previously mentioned authors. The works are collages, formed of elements of intense colouring. Recycling as the basis of creative process, is present in the process of making collage, but the plasticity, shine and deliberate rusticity in treatment of the materials, give them that extraordinary freshness and expressiveness “, said Marko Lađušić, a full time professor at the Faculty of Applied Arts.

20.12.2017 – 07.01.2018 “Inscription in stone, exhibition of Tatjana Vojnov’s mosaics

By the mosaics from the cycle „Inscription in stone“ the author Tatjana Tanja Vojnov materialises the abstract concepts of emotional and mental state and displays their subjective experience. The exhibited works are made up of several separate entities. Each entity can be viewed individually and all entities together develop a story that follows the author’s sensibility and bear a personal touch. The material from which the mosaics are made is a natural stone. The natural state of the material chosen to make up the mosaic, as well as the choice of the theme itself, suggest the presence of symbolism in visual expression, and multidimensionality of the work has been achieved by introducing the three-dimensional (relief/embossed) image of individual segments and their selected arrangement.

Landscapes and nature are my great inspiration and the energy that fills me up; it starts flowing from me and then overflows through the brush onto the paper... It is a pleasure to play with visual art elements and also a surprise when something new and interesting appears on paper, some coincidences that result from technique and the choice of material and a way I apply them... It is an endless game that aspires from realistic forms  to abstract ones, a new imagination that is continually being re-born...“ says the artist.

18.01– 06.02 Nina Savčić: “Elements” - Exhibition of aquarelle

Nature is a motive on all the exhibited watercolor paintings. Special attention was given to the atmosphere, reflections in the water, to the sky, which often takes half the size of a painting format, the trees that inhabit the landscape without people...Some of the works are on the verge of abstraction; yet the elements of the reality are clearly recognizable on all the aquarelles.  The idea behind all these art works that also appears to be a personal motive, is a concept of freedom, a nature that is developing on its own,  with no human influence. The freedom in its purest form, the unconstrained growth, free from any kind of control…Aquarelle is therefore the appropriate technique: water is pouring out and carries the color and the artist appears to be adjusting to it, rather than controlling it.

Four young artists: Danilo Crnogorac (sound design), Milica Šolajić (photo), Igor Andrić (photo) and Nemanja Blagojević (graphic design), are the authors of a multimedia exhibition  "Sound of the Eye".

Young artists from the Faculty of Applied Arts have presented their works at the “UGA” exhibition.

These works have a common model, a symbol of companionship, positive energy and the space in the atelier that the artists share.  

“This generation of students have quite a few exhibitions and awards under their belt, but innovative approach and experimenting are their distinctive feature. This group of students started their companionship in the atelier which simbolizes progress, laughter, love, plans and fantasies. That is exactly why this exhibition brings the focus back on friendship” – said Vladimir Miljaković, one of the participants in the exhibition and thanked Milorad Stanković for his great contribution as an “UGA” professional model.

The exhibited artworks are a part of the intangible cultural heritage. Thirty three artworks of the selected authors were exhibited from the collection of Gallery Babka in Kovačica.

’’Slovak naive art is the only art project of this size of a national minority in Serbia . With this project we are showing that we are ahead of time, because the exhibition incorporates the cultural heritage and the economic and touristic aspect into a creative economy. It is important that we take the idea of creative economy from Europe since each painting also has all the elements of goods and as such its own value. Given the fact that it takes 100 years for an art form to get established, we are particularly proud that we managed to preserve the tradition since each  art work tells its own story that goes on through several generations’’ – said Mr Pavel Babka, the founder of Gallery Babka.

Exhibition of paintings done in oil and acrylic presents everything the word “devotion” stands for – deep commitment, attachment, possessiveness and worship.

“The works portray a constant battle in the uncompromising commitment of an individual who is searching for reality that binds us. In my works I have tended to avoid various material, religious, nationalist forms and narrative values, and have searched for the naked truth instead. My work focuses on an individual, all people who are striving towards living in the moment and who are committed to their essence,” said Radomir Milović, author of the exhibition, and added that film, literature, fashion and contemporary art are his source of inspiration and that influences of different artists are important for an artistic vision, emotional and visual communication, but that it is, nevertheless, important to preserve one’s self.
